    Will it have low range? And will the dct take the abuse it will see at windrock park?

    I don't see any reason for Honda remove Low Range when its already on the P1K and the Talon is most definitely using the same engine or derivative of it.

    Adding stickers isn’t that big of an expense to prepare it for the woods. After all those stickers are going to get shredded. Better keep her on the highways:confused:

    Think all you guys are thinking about the Arctic Cat that Textron bought, they kept most of the engineers from Arctic Cat and said, Textron has deep pockets, go design a machine to compete wit RZR's and Can Am's, totally different designed machines now, if you haven't been to a dealer ship that has the 2019 models in the last three months, you have no idea! The stock front and rear a arms on the Havoc make Super Atv a arms look like spaghetti. I will probably ride a Honda the rest of my life. I think Textron has raised the level on suspension components and Honda will have to raise there's.

    Yes I have been to the dealership, stopped at Nelson's SnoMotion.....snowmobile/orv show they put on every year, last weekend in Aug. They are a full line dealer, Honda, Polaris, Yamaha, Arctic Cat/Textron, I looked at them all. The ACTextron was interesting but not for me, I don't want a belt drive and it will take several years before I look at another Arctic Cat product regardless of who is the owner at the time, too many bad experiences with Cat in the past. I almost pulled the trigger on a P1K5 Limited that day but I decided to hold out until spring in case Honda surprises us all. :)

    OW, so you've been to a dealership, these are bad A! Watched a test with the Wild Catt XXX against the Yamaha, RZR and Can AM. Did a drag race with all five, the XXX finished last by a half length, then they ran them through some muddy whoops, the XXX finished 1st. I think they are great machines and believe they will make all MGF's step up there game.

    I really hope Honda surprises us with a great sport model, but I really doubt it will happen. Honda has the engineers to smoke them all, it's the bean counters holding them back, why make a great S x S, when you are making a ton of money on a mediocre machine, well the wave will catch you Honda!

    I love our Pioneer but that’s where the Wolvie shines for the money. That 3500 we all spent comes standard on the 11k r-spec. Plus rad guard Warn and a roof. Woods ready it is.
    As far as Textron though no way. It’s Japanese or nothing for me anymore, don’t care what machine leaves the gate the fastest, longitivtiy matters to me. Feel damn good about the Pioneer now.

    The Textron has a Yamaha motor for 19. Yamaha probably has the best motor out there right now!

    I'm having my doubts that you had to buy those for "serious woods riding".

    You have a p500... you wouldn’t understand what serious riding is.

    I will do a review after my actual trail test of the Wildcat XX. First impressions is they spent a lot of time on drivetrain and suspension. The finishes are very good and design is simple but adequate.
